The point of the assignment was to add frames to our images which is just what I did to help draw your attention toward the biker on the path. I had a similar shot with no biker, but the human element made this seem more interesting to me.
The light was quite bright and scattered across the image - even in the shadows. I played with the levels and added a color layer to help boost the warmth I felt that day.
Next I added two frame layers. One is quite broad and is not very obvious. I used it to darken the outer part of the image and make the center seem brighter in contrast. A narrow dark border was added to finish this off. Both borders are heavily feathered to blend into the shot.
I like knowing how to make this vintage-style border that is similar to a quick action I can do with the PicSay Pro app on my phone.
